Stare Into Space

Run to the hills

Posted on | October 31, 2009 | 2 Comments

My heart is gladdened.  This week, after an absence of a number of months, I managed to get back to the hills again.  A few months back I tore ligaments in my ankle and was forced out for a bit.  While my ankle still hurts a little if stretched in certain directions, I deemed it hike-worthy and on Wednesday, the brother and I set off for Tonelagee.

The weather was reasonable (for Ireland).  Overcast for the most part and a bit of a breeze.  Good walking weather.  The going was steep and exceedingly boggy in places – ankle deep at times. Not a long walk, but good views and an interesting standing stone, inscribed with a cross.

Enjoyed it immensely.  Glad to be back.  Some more images over at my PicasaWeb.

I mostly sit around all day and drink tea. Occasionally, I write stuff and send it to strangers so they can humiliate me and deride my efforts. Other than the self-harm to dull the shame of failure, it's not a bad life. Like I say, there's tea.
